Details

If you've every wished you could go barefoot all summer, dream no more! The Flora Solstice offers everything you could want in a sandal: a lightweight and open design, a classic and versatile silhouette, and a secure fit for free and easy movement. The sunny Turquoise leather uppers with white Flora petals feature clean lines accented with contrast stitching, and the closed back and adjustable strap secure the sandal to your foot (unlike that basket full of old flip-flops you've been meaning to phase-out). Perfect for treks to your favorite forest swim spot, strolls to the local ice cream shop, or dancing the night away at your next blowout barbecue, the Flora Solstice just might become your next summer romance! 

  • Flexible, minimal Vibram rubber sole molds to your foot
  • Buckle closure for adjustable fit
  • Handcrafted in USA from premium, responsibly-sourced leathers

Please note: the Solstice style runs big so we recommend going down a full size from your regular Softstar shoe size. See the video below for sizing tips.

Cute, comfortable, convenient. Review by Melissa

I followed the sizing recommendations, sort of. Instead of one size down, I ordered my normal size, but with a wide width. The regular width is a little sleeker looking, but I like the wide because I hate more than the lightest pressure on the front and sides of my foot. The leather on these shoes is delightfully soft. If you are not used to wearing minimalist soles, you will probably want to only wear these a little at first so your feet can get used to it. These are my first pair of Softstar shoes, and the next time I need a pair of shoes, Softstar will be at the top of my list. The Flora Solstice sandals are by far the cutest minimalist sole shoes I own, and I get compliments whenever I wear them. (Posted on 10/28/17)
Such Comfort! Review by Jo-Anne

This is the first time I have purchased Softstar Shoes. I have gotten a number of compliments on the shoes and I find them to be so comfortable. They aren't the best when walking on concrete however as there is not much between you and the concrete. Other than that, I'm really enjoying these shoes and I have recommended your shoes to others.

Attention Getter! Review by Jenny from the Block

I ordered the incorrect size in turquoise. When they say order a size down, they mean it. I ended up returning them (thank you for the great service). The day I returned them, the sale was announced. I ordered a pair in the correct size..on sale (yellow with a white flower). Loved them from the time I put them on. I wore them to my nephews wedding last week and had FOUR people ask me where I got them. I wore them to a funeral a few days prior and had THREE people ask where I got them. This is my first pair of Soft Star Shoes and I can't wait to order another pair. Great service from the SoftStar elves and a great attention getter! (Posted on 5/15/17)
Most Comfy Review by SingerGrl

I've had these sandals over a year now, and I wear them as often as I can. They so very comfortable that I almost forget I'm wearing shoes, and I inevitably get many compliments on my adorable sandals. My only "issue" with them is that I wish the buckle were velcro. I have 3 children 4 and under at the moment, and have a hard time getting these on while chasing the kids around! Certainly not a design flaw, but a personal preference in this very exhausting and fulfilling time of life. Thank you Soft Star for yet another fabulous shoe! My boys wear theirs daily, and I'm waiting on my daughter to grow into her first pair too. (Posted on 4/21/17)
Super cute and feel like slippers! Review by Peacewillow

These were my first pair of barefoot shoes and they are amazing. My mom actually ordered for me. I have received lots of complements and even people wanting to take pictures and get the info on them. I did order another pair in black and went down a size and got them wide like suggested. I'm normally a 6 and these I got in a u5 but they are a tiny bit long that's why I got the black in a 4. I actually love them both! (Posted on 10/12/16)

This is my first pair of Soft Star shoes and it will not be my last! It's soft and comfortable and attractive too! What a happy color and design :-) Thanks so much! (Posted on 6/6/16)
Makes me smile Review by Dori

It is important to order one size smaller. I almost ordered 2 sizes smaller which would have been a mistake. I wear a 9 in soft star and ordered an 8. It fits well and is very attractive. I wanted a yellow shoe and got one. My only problem is that I hesitate to wear them as I don't want to get spots on the shoe. I'm just going to have to wear them and then get more if they wear out.

Gorgeous Summer Sandal Review by Arcole

I ordered this lovely sandal last spring and wore it constantly through the summer. I got loads of compliments on them. The leather is beautiful and the fit is right on target. I ordered a size smaller than my usual and it was perfect. I also have a pair in black and before next summer will likely order another pair in another fun color. All my SoftStar shoes are fantastic and are holding up very well. Thank you, SoftStar elves! (Posted on 12/1/15)
Great summer shoe Review by AlpacaMama

The beauty of every Soft Star shoe is that they feel so good the first time they're put on, and this one is no different. It's been the shoe I've worn all summer, when not barefoot, and it's seen me to a wedding, to church, to the farmers' market, walking the dogs and much more. And it's been perfectly appropriate in every location. The elves say to order a size smaller than normal, I did and the fit is perfect. (Posted on 8/21/15)

Unsure about your size? Our printable guide will help you find the best fit for your feet! Just click the button below to print the guide and follow the instructions on the page (if you don't have access to a printer then scroll down for another option).

No Printer? No Problem!

You can still measure feet using the method below (also shown in our sizing videos). You can then scroll down and see where your measurements fall on our sizing charts to find the recommended shoe size. All you need is a book, a tape measure and a wall.

Note: we no longer recommend tracing your feet because it usually gives a larger measurement than the method described below. Our sizing charts work in accordance with the following method.

To measure your feet:

  1. 1. Remove shoes and socks and place the bare foot so that the heel is barely touching a wall.
  2. 2. Place a book in on the floor, parallel to the wall, so that it is barely touching the front of the longest toe.
  3. 3. Step away carefully and measure the distance from the book to the wall.
  4. 4. Scroll down and look for this measurement on the sizing charts below to find the recommended shoe size.

     

Once you find your length measurement, you can use table below to best find your corresponding size.

 

Wide/Narrow: Trouble deciding your width? Our best recommendation is to order a wide or narrow only if you have found you need those custom widths in other brands for your feet to be comfortable. If you have never found you needed wide or narrow shoes before then we suggest sticking with our regular width.

Style notes:

If you find yourself between two shoe sizes, we recommend ordering the larger size. This is especially true of our adult Phoenix Boots and Rogue casual shoes, which run a bit small.

Care Tips for Full Grain (smooth) Leather Shoes

WHEN THEY FIRST ARRIVE:

Softstar Shoes are made from eco-friendly leathers tanned in the USA. Leather is a natural product and some variation in texture and hide markings is to be expected. Because we use leather colored with non-toxic food grade dyes, there will likely be some initial color transfer to your socks or skin if your shoes become damp. This will decrease with use, but we don't recommend wearing your new Softstars with your favorite white socks the first time you take them for a spin. 

 

If your shoes are a little snug at first in the toe box area, you can gently stretch them by stuffing the toe box with a dry cloth. Push the cloth tightly into the front of the shoe and let sit stuffed overnight to stretch. Do not use a damp cloth as the water can stain the leather or innersole of some leather types, rendering it non-returnable.

 

MAINTENANCE:

Most full grain leather we use is naturally water resistant, but our special vegetable-tanned leather (available only by custom selection on some of our design-your-own shoes) is a "naked" leather and will stain from water alone. You can clean shoes as needed with water dampened cloth and let air dry, but please note if you do this on vegetable-tanned leather then you will need to wet/stain the entire shoe to avoid water marks. Condition the leather as often as desired with any quality leather dressing, but be careful to keep it away from the edges of your rubber soles. Do not use mink oil on your shoes, as it can degrade the adhesion on bonded soles and cause the sole to separate from your shoe over time. We highly recommend Bee Natural Amore for general conditioning or Rain & Snow or Nikwax Full Grain Waterproofing on smooth leather for enhanced water resistance. The color on shiny metallic shoes will eventually patina with use into an antique wear look, which can be accelerated with repeated use to water and high wear (e.g. scuffing toes).

 

WASHING:

We do not recommend frequent washing of any leather product as it strips the leather of it's natural oils and tends to dry stiffer. For all of our leathers (except vegetable-tanned) you can clean by hand with a damp cloth, or if needed you can hand wash your leather shoes using a gentle shampoo and cool water. Let them air dry. Do not attempt to dry your shoes by exposing them to high heat, such as a clothes dryer, a hair dryer or by leaving them on a radiator or next to a fire. Doing so may damage leather or rubber soles.

 

We are often asked if our shoes can be washed in a washing machine. While not recommended as a normal course of action, when in dire straits the Elves have been known to toss a pair of shoes in the machine and generally have had good results. Just don't mix them with any other item because of color bleeding. Shoes with sheepskin can take 3-4 days to air dry if fully submerged in water, but you can speed up the drying by stuffing with old newspapers and replacing the paper twice a day.
